Trying Something New: Vintage Metallic Desk

Confession: I've been in love with mirrored and metallic furniture ever since I saw them on Tori and Dean's "Home Sweet Hollywood" show a couple years ago! Let me tell you, though, they are pricey! This one, from Horchow, (at $2110,) and this one (at $1849) were inspirations for my old antique desk.

Here is a before picture:

And, here is the desk, after:

To get this look, I used a metallic silver paint, then toned it down with an antiquing glaze. I finished it with a high-gloss sealer to give it a nice shine. Oh, and I didn't get a picture of this, but the drawers are a nice crisp white on the inside! What do you think?

Here it is again:

Vintage Metallic Desk/Vanity measures: 48" wide, 19.75" deep, 30" tall.
$160

Happy Wednesday, everyone!
